Trapped in Transit: Orwellian Moscow airport hotel
SHEREMETYEVO AIRPORT (AP) -- "An interesting route, Mr. Phillips," says the airport transit desk employee. "This activity makes for suspicion."
It was the start of an Orwellian adventure in which I deliberately got myself sequestered in the hopes of finding Edward Snowden at Moscow's main airport.
The experience leaves me feeling that if the NSA leaker is indeed in the transit zone of the airport, as President Vladimir Putin claims, he may already have a taste of what it's like to be in prison.
